Musk acquired a 9.1% stake in Twitter on April 4, making him the company’s largest shareholder.

Twitter announced that Musk would be joining its board; however, Tesla’s CEO announced on April 9 via Twitter that he had declined that offer.

Had he accepted the board seat, Musk’s stake in Twitter would have been limited to no more than 14.9% for the duration of his service, plus 90 days.
